Seattle 6/13/80

http://www.archive.org/details/gd80-06-13.akg.clugston.7196.sbeok.shnf

This gem of a show was played right after one of the smaller but still impressive eruptions of Mount St. Helens that followed the big one on 5/18/80, and sent ash falling throughout the region. This show, which is from a pretty darn good Aud source, seems to takes its cue from the volcano and have similar "eruptions" from beginning to end. The first set "smokes", with outstanding versions of Sugaree, Passenger, Althea, Sailor/Saint and Deal. Jerry is on "fire" from start to finish, digging deep into all the solos, fingers flying and "spewing" notes out faster than seems humanly possible. In the second set, the "eruption" of hot sonic "gas" continues and envelops the listener like a musical "pyroclastic flow". Highlights of this "explosion" include a "burning" Don't Ease opener into a Let It Grow that leaves nothing standing in its wake, sending out "tremor" after tremor, shaking the listener to the "core". Does this onslaught then let up? No. A China/Rider follows that seems hotter than "molten lava", featuring an outstading bridge between the two tunes where Bobby breaks a string and Phil and Jerry fill in with a gorgeous jam. The Rider itself just "boils" with energy, Jerry's fingers continuing their "volcanic" attack. The Terrapin that follows is quite good and after D/S, the boys come up with a powerful Other One into an "earth shattering" Wharf Rat that shakes the entire building, "flowing" into a Sugar Mags that just "melts" the crowd, "boiling" with energy from the whole band. To finish things off, the boys roll out an "Alabama Getaway" that nicely puts a cap on the "smoking crater" the whole show has left behind.
I had almost as much fun with the volcanic metaphors as I did listening to this show. Highly recommend this one if you are looking for a nice show to put on your "mantle".

OK, I think I may have hurt myself...

Same venue, a year earlier. I was at this one. Fun night. Phil had to step out before the show to chill the folks who were setting off firecrackers and such inside the place, though, threatening that they wouldn't come back to Seattle if people didn't start behaving themselves. They did so until the first set closer of Passenger, when someone set off some kind of slowly rising colorful skyrocket that actually accompanied the music almost perfectly. Nothing else until the Shakedown Street encore when a freakin' M-80 went BOOM! The crowd booed that, but followed quickly with cheers for the band, just so the band would know they were expressing disapproval of somebody's inconsideration, not the song selection.

Now picture George C. Scott stumbling over himself trying to reach the stage for the Mississippi Half Step opener.

When he trips in that scene--my kids have laughed about that for years...must have made them watch the movie when they were in ele school and they just loved him...one of his greatest roles.

How can you guys get back to the DEAD with this great flick to keep us occupied...oh, all right...I imagine I will be lectured shortly on the nature of this forum...

You know, I was all set to get back on track when "Bat Guano" was brought up and I lost it yet again. May be hopeless today.

I know I shouldn't bring this up, but things could get really out of hand if we started in on "Life of Brian" (Dire out there today?)

What I was thinking was I was going to ask him if he could make me a bit lame in one leg during the middle of the week. You know, something beggable, but not leprosy, which is a pain in the ass to be blunt and excuse my French, sir.

A Forum brunch: Larks' tongues. Wrens' livers. Chaffinch brains. Jaguars' earlobes. Wolf nipple chips. Get 'em while they're hot. They're lovely. Dromedary pretzels, only half a denar. Tuscany fried bats.

Gotta love some good wolf nipple chips, I always say.

Well, I think I should point out first, William, in all fairness, we are not, in fact, the rescue committee. However, I have been asked to read the following prepared statement on behalf of the movement. "We the People's Front of Judea, brackets, Official, end brackets, do hereby convey our sincere fraternal and sisterly greetings to you, William, on this, the occasion of your martyrdom.

... a sacrifice is required for the future of the (forum). I hasten to add that since each man will be required to do prodigious... service along these lines, the women will have to be selected for their sexual characteristics which will have to be of a highly stimulating nature.

Mein Hollow, I can walk!

Hey Rob--clearly one of our favorite movies here, at least for Grendel, SDH & I. Have you seen it? My favorite Brit actor (Sellers), and so appropriate for all the antics on the forum, eh?

Maybe I'll change my name to Buc Turgidson, or Bat Guano for more fun...hmmm, I could start logging on with multiple handles using only names from the movie.

Hope all is well with you, Rob.

Hey WT! Hope all is well with you too. Been such a long time since I saw that movie - wish I had a copy so I could indulge myself in it one more time.

Survival kit contents check. In them you'll find: one forty-five caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days' concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Russian phrase book and Bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair of nylon stockings and a copy of LiveDead. Shoot, a fella' could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.
